commented on Move, Bitch. Get Out the Way. My Final Philosophy
Well wishes to you Mr. Mizell, you will be missed! I loved reading your stuff and know you will kill it in LA. Thanks for your contribution to our city...
@15, uh, nailed it. Larry Mizell is another great writer bouncing from the paper when removing all of the pot ads is reduced to a few pages of weak copy, Savage Love, Astrology and some music writers writing about their friends. In all fairness, this is the plight of print papers however I need to get rid of all of these side bar ads here on the Slog...tiresome.

@1, geez, way to welcome him into retail...I for one am glad Sonic Boom is still around!! I never go to Boob Street yet Ballard has two new stores which have opened recently, Mezzanine on 20th and Market and Blue Bell on 52nd Street! Support your local record stores Cato!

I am going to echo @1's feelings albeit the saddest part of this story is the Pizza Hut delivery. Yet, I too will follow Travis and eat wherever he lands! He makes creative yet not precious food that this city has never seen before. Great article for a real pioneer!

@14 and Ms. Sydney, "dykekiki" hasn't been a ladies beach in years. MANY years it was for a few swim seasons. Presently most of my dyke pals say it is too creppy with dudes walking around naked - which it is.
This article is so much of the "good ol' days" type bullshit that makes all the new people here laugh. I have lived here since 1988 and yet feel awkward talking about how cool Fremont was or shopping on Broadway since that too in 1988 was changing and many old timers back then were telling me "meh" to both places. @3, awesome - the older Rendezvous was scary and fun...I can still remember someone dying there from an OD and the bar kept serving drunks, er, drinks after they hauled away the corpse.
